Welcome to my kitchen! The heart of my home!
I am Madhuri. I am a photographer. A traveller. A designer. But above all, a food lover. Food moves me. Inspires me. It brings together all the things I love on a single plate. I grew up helping my mother and aunt churn out delicacies during festivals and special occasions. When I moved to London after my marriage, I discovered a whole new world of ingredients that I could play around with, which made cooking a regular and fun affair. I explored tastes and textures. I stumbled onto delicate flavours and balanced blends. I experimented with new spices and mixes. My family relished every dish that I put together, which kept me going strong.
I continued to follow my passion for all things food even after I returned to India. Over the years, I have collected recipes from diverse sources ranging from house help, vegetable vendors to close friends to tv shows. I started Madaboutkitchen as a way to remember these precious recipes. To share my love for food, connect with like-minded people, and keep learning. As a celebration of my journey so far; of all things sweet and savoury, and everything in-between.
I hope you enjoy reading my stories and following my journey. Thank you so much for stopping by and feel free to give me a shout at [email protected]!
